Eagerly waiting for the good news ! Hope that SC is a little considerate to the common man and gives us some respite.

One of the best legal brains in the country Mr. Soli Sorabjee(former Attorney general of the Gov. of India) is arguing the case on behalf of the sunfilm industry. That's probably the best that can be done legally. If it fails, only a people's movement resulting in a new law enacted in Parliament, can save us.

I know that, and have been praying ever since. We all need to rise against this.

Why is any news on the sunfilm verdict too hard to find? Not sure if it has been postponed again. Wonder why the media is also silent on this issue?

The Facebook page "Movement Against Supreme Court's Decision to Totally Ban Suncontrol Films" which says the hearing has been postponed to 25th, I think its a fake page fooling us.

This is the court order, and it doesn't mention anything about the 25th July hearing.

Default Ban Still continues

Ban still continues:

Quote:
Rules prevail
The bench, however, brushed aside their plea saying, “Please don’t say that, it was your choice not to come (to court).”
“We found that rules were not being followed. We have only interpreted the rules. We have said that law permits glass and nothing else. Your films may be great, but how can we change the rules,” the bench remarked.
Following the arguments, the court reserved its order on the applications of the black film manufacturers.

I have searched the Internet and didn't find any update on the hearing of the case.
No one at Hyderabad seems to care about the sunfilms so far and I hope it stays this way!
Keeping fingers crossed.

How is the enforcement in smaller towns. I know most of big cities they are pretty strict. I might have to make trip to smaller towns like Hosur or outskirts of Chennai. How is the enforcement in such places?

I am not seeing this enforced anywhere in Tamilnadu apart from Chennai. If you visit Chennai, the probability of getting caught is very high.

But having said that our judiciary and the whole system is so full of frustration. The judges have become too media savvy now given the detailed and frantic coverage given to SC and HC verdicts these days by the media. They took less then 1 hearing to pass on a judgement which they felt would make them look good morally and socially without giving a thought to the implications of the same. I have given up hope of any thing positive coming out of this now and would most likely get the films removed whenever the cops stop my car next time. But this just taught me a lesson that in our country there is absolutely no sense in trying to follow the law since at the end of the day there is no difference in the eyes of the govt/courts about which side of the law you were to begin with.

I don't think any judgement was made on July 25th. Correct me if I am mistaken.

If that's the case, IMHO the title of this thread is a bit misleading. Moderators note and take necessary action. Thanks
